units. >> okay, commissioner moore. >> i'm sorry, i should have taken my name off. >> commissioner wu. >> just to add one last thought on this conversation is that there is a policy difference here, which is that moh has to finance these units. so, in the example where the developer builds bmrs, the units come ready, however you want to say it. but the city is taking on more of the burden. i really agree we have to make sure it's economically correct. >> commissioner sugaya. commissioner antonini. >> well, on this issue of off-site land dedication, for years we've had a lot of affordable housing activists who have come forward and said, we really want this, particularly in the mission district. so, it's been created and it seems like the wrong forum, although it's worthy of discussion. this is not the time. when the policy is being formulated and approved, that's when the discussion should come forward and make sure it works out equitably and these are all valid comments since they're not being built right now, but itself a trade-off. again this is probably one of the reasons the proj

but i will see what the other commissioners have to say. >> commissioner moore. >>i would like the commissioners to look at the parcel map to see that the dr requesters map is south from the proposed subject property. the reason i am saying this is it's about views and not light but about views and as much as i like to protect it the house in front of us today has made concessions that comes out of the san francisco neighborhood discussions [inaudible] portolla drive and you have stately homes and setback from the street and individually designed homes on large lots speak for themselves, kind of stately neighborhood . the fact that the proposed building primarily has relatively low ceiling heights for this building type is already a major concession to keeping the building not too imposing or impacting on adjoining properties and i assume they had the dr request's house in mind also. we also have the additional lot 37 where someone else in the future might be building. what i can tell it's a buildable lot. that's not part of the discussion here. i myself would agree with th

to hear what the rest of the commission has to said. >> commissioner moore. >> before i get into my comments on the specifics of the project, i would like to acknowledge my support for commissioner wu's concerns about the trade-off between on-site and off-site in this particular case, very well phrased, has a very important policy question with the hope we will continue discussion with the [speaker not understood] and among ourselves. we do all want to avoid the overconcentration of affordability within one area as well. so, i think it's a very subtle question. what is the proper balance. two comments on the project. it's amazing that we're starting the year, the new year, with such a powerful project. i think it's very, very strong because this project has been around forever with all of its trials and tribulations, the ups and downs, the downs and the glimmers of hope of it can you having back and not coming back. that aside, i want to acknowledge the public on an extremely sensitive and well thoughts common to basically cover the whole spectrum of what the commission likes and ne

a little longer than originally planned. the current chief chris moore is scheduled to retire next friday, but the city manager has decided to expand the pool of candidates saying she needs more time to find a perfect match for the job. a city spokesman is playing down the delay saying that there was never a hard deadline. for the first time, no one in the san jose police department's existing command staff is seeking the top job. recent budget cutbacks have prompted a lot of officers to find jobs in other cities in the department. they have been very low. >>> the federal aviation officials are trying to assure the public that bowings new 787 dream liner is safe to fly. the secretary transportation says that they would have no reservations about taking a flight on the dream liner. now, this even as the faa launches a comprehensive review. last monday a fire ignited in a battery pack as the empty 787 sat on the tarmac in boston. aviation safety experts say that recent problems including a big fuel leak are more likely the results of the quality c

overtreated and not the wizard is seminal for us in understanding more is not better , that moore can hurt us. it was her book to explain that to eyes and therefore i sought her out to be in our film. c-span: here she is in others. >> the vast majority are paid by a fee-for-service system. that means they get paid for each office visit. if their surgeons, they get paid for each procedure. if it's a radiologist, they get paid for each ct scan they deliver. c-span: if i spent five minutes for you, you probably get paid $1500. for me to spend 45 minutes on an established visit with the patient to make sure they're doing exercise, making sure diabetes is okay and to figure out whether to problem says, probably get paid $15. it's a completely irrational system. >> fee-for-service rewards physicians for doing more. it does not reward them for doing a better job. it doesn't report them for keeping patients healthy. it rewards them for giving more care. c-span: what the doctors think of the fee-for-service? did you find out? >> guest: it is an antiquated, broken, perverse system that nobody is happy

wall street journal"'s steve moore. steve, a disturbing series of events, to put it mildly. >> no question about it, neil. and, look, we have a three-branch system of government in washington. the president is the chief of the executive branch, that means the president doesn't make the laws, he executes the laws that congress passes. and, you know, i'm in austin, texas, today. here in texas everybody's been talking about this. what is with all these executive orders? what gives the president the authority to do this? and the one that, you know, i'm most interested in, obviously, is whether the president will try to unilaterally raise the debt ceiling without approval of congress. and that is the scuttlebutt right now in washington, that the president is simply going to do it whether congress authorizes that extension or not. neil: you know, sabrina, it's odd that this is occurring the same week we saw the movie "lincoln" honored with 12 oscar nods. of course, a lot of people point to the fact that abraham lincoln, you know, habeas corpus went way after and way beyond what c
